"She has now led millions of people around the world, 150 countries, to act on behalf of the planet and she's been really the key driver this year taking this issue from backstage to centre". "That is all we are saying", she told the magazine.

The magazine cover has a picture of Thunberg with the subtitle "The Power of Youth". She is youngest figure to receive the distinction in its 92-year history.

Thunberg has been very vocal about her diagnosis of Asperger's, a neurological disorder characterized by difficulty with social and communication skills, and has compared it to a superpower, as she believes it's helped her stay focused on her goals.

"The politics of climate action are as entrenched and complex as the phenomenon itself, and Ms Thunberg has no magic solution", Time wrote in the interview.

In her latest talk, she focused on the science and the "misleading" behaviour of politicians and big business.

"I'm sure that if people heard what was going on and what was said ... during these meetings, they would be outraged".

Greta Thunberg told negotiators at the United Nations climate change forum in Madrid that their promises on slashing greenhouse gas emissions were a world apart from what was needed. "We did it to make her happy and to get her back to life".

"Flight-shaming" has gained momentum, especially in Europe, where some travelers concerned about the environmental impact of flying are seeking alternative forms of transport.

In traveling around the world as a high-profile activist, Thunberg has notably avoided the greenhouse gas emissions of air travel.

In a speech at the COP25 talks in Madrid, Spain, the Swedish teenager, who inspired the worldwide school strikes for climate movement, said: "Our leaders are not behaving as if we are in an emergency".

Trump has questioned climate science and has challenged every major USA regulation aimed at combating climate change.

During a speech at around the same time, she bristled with anger.

"This is all wrong". "You have come to us young people for hope. How dare you?" she told delegates.

"You have stolen my dreams, my childhood, with your empty words and yet I'm one of the lucky ones", she continued.

But "this is not leading, this is misleading", she said, warning that the targets did not include aviation and shipping, or the emissions created by goods made in other countries and imported - and did include "offsetting" emissions.
